Transmission control module X3 location

Hi Guys from Panama, I own a 2007 X3 (E83) and I have been experiencing problems when I apply the reverse. The shop plugged the scanner and apparently there is a failed communication between the main computer and the transmission control module (EGS).

It is a GA6l45R meaning a GM transmission assembled in France.

Does any one know the location of this module ?

Thanks any help will be appreciated.

Thumbs up Trans Control Module location

Hi, I have an 03 and it is under the hood by the hood bracket on the passenger side above the fire wall. It is inside of a black box that has a screw on cover. There are two modules inside along with some relays. You have to remove the panel that is covering the area where the wiper motors are. There are three connectors full of wires and two plastic tabs one on each end that has to be pried out of the way to lift it out after you have unplugged it. The plastic part where the plugs connect is blue, the other it the engine control module it has five plugs full of wires. The plugs have a release lever with a tab that you have to depress in order to release the plugs. I don't think that they have changed the location. Good luck.
